Skunktown Beanery is written for soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones and begins with a jaunty rhythmic interplay with the baritone pitted against the three other voices. The interplay continues when the soprano breaks away (m. 23) to play an infectious melody which seems to float over the others. This culminates with the ensemble driving like a well-oiled big band (m. 39). There is a return to the soprano melody juxtaposed over the rhythmic interplay of the others (m. 56) which develops rhythmically, leading to an improvised jazz solo in the soprano.
